Sailing on the Duyfken

Ocean Sailing Adventure

It's time for you to step aboard...and experience the thrill and adventure of sailing a 16th Century tall ship on the ocean waters off the coast of Fremantle. This is the 'bucket-list' experience that will have you riding the ocean swells so its not one for the faint hearted...but it is an adventure that you will remember!  With just 12 crew/passenger positions available on each 4 hour sailing adventure, this limited opportunity is one not to be missed.

Duyfken is a ship steeped in history. The original is acknowledged as the first European ship to make landfall on the shores of Australia in 1606...some 164 years prior to the arrival of Captain James Cook aboard HMB Endeavour.  The replica of Duyfken that you will sail aboard is an authentic and faithful reproduction of the original ship, so when you step aboard it will feel like you are being transported back in time to 1606! 

Your experience aboard Duyfken will include

  • A full tour of the ship with our ship guides.
  • A wonderful sailing experience on the ocean waters to the south west of the port of Fremantle. 
  • A chance to be part of the crew as you hoist the sails ready for the adventure to begin.
  • Opportunities to take wonderful photos of both action aboard the ship and the Fremantle skyline. 
  • Refreshments to compliment your sailing experience. 
  • Arrive aboard at 10.00am for a 10.30am departure and a return to port around 2.30pm.
